Judy Landells (left) and Stephanie Ewig (right), of the Valley Vista July 4th “Blast” committee, presents a $1,000 donation to MCSO Search and Rescue (SAR) Kingman Unit Commander Buffalo Hayden and SAR Sergeant Tom Blum (second from left).

The donation was generated through a celebration held in Valley Vista that included a “hole in one” chance held during a golf tournament, children’s games and other events. MCSO SAR operates solely through donations and fundraisers, and receives no funding from the county, state or federal governments.

The committee also made a donation to the Northern Arizona Consolidated Fire District.
